Show your Zipped Roadies

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Shot of my QS2 with Zipps in it's first incarnation.





Since then I've changed seat post to one with setback, gone with a 140mm -23* Deda stem (instead of teh 150mm -8* one that is on it in the pic), and gone to a Deda Newton traditional round bar. I need to snap a couple new pics.
